Problem with this is it's actually rated at a stock 1.65v for these specs.  The ram I quoted was rated to run the specs at 1.5v, which is what the 435 series runs.  I'm sure of the MT running the ram at a stock 1.5v and almost sure the T is 1.5v as well.

Right, but I keep seeing different numbers from different places on the same parts. At OCZ, all three are 1.65V (or 1.6V* or 1.65EVP*).

Thanks.

Hey colorado and kate,

Other than CCC start error, I did not have problems until I downloaded new bios and updates from dell support. Sounds like your problems came from the factory and the unit never worked good........................Raymond

My remarkable sniffing surmises you would be running your X chips under profile 2.

But I guess I gotta pull the trigger. on the P's.

Re: XPS 435 Owners Thread

Sorry if this has been discussed already, but I ran into a couple of issues regarding expandability of the 435.  Other than these, I'm quite happy with the performance of my new desktop.

First, I ordered a 500 GB hard drive to augment the 750 GB HD that was stock.  When it arrived, there was no SATA cable or mounting screws.  I looked at the specs and found nothing to indicate that it was an OEM model.

Also, I had bought an ASUS XONAR Excellence sound card, only to find out later that there was no 4-pin power plug available, and that only two sound cards, both by Creative, are compatible with this model of Dell desktop.  So I had to return the ASUS card and pay a $30 restocking fee and $7 for shipping.  Now I have a Creative SB Fatal1ty card that works fine.

As to these problems, I'll take part of the hit for not asking first, but I made it clear to the support representative on chat that it was to be a second hard drive.  Perhaps if support were being handled from an English-speaking country (like the US!) the rep. would have picked up on that nuance and told me that I'd need to order mounting screws and a SATA cable.

As to the incompatibility of the sound card, isn't PCIe a standard?  Shouldn't any PCIe-compliant device work?

Thanks for the benefit of anyone's experience in these areas, and hopefully someone can learn from my experience.

Jim

Re: XPS 435 Owners Thread

Jim,

No drives come with SATA cables bundled within the box, and there are spare mounting screws included for you to use when you open the case...just look around the drive cage and you'll see them.

Re: XPS 435 Owners Thread

Napageo,

I believe if you move the stick in slot 3 to slot 6, your have 8GB triple channel, according to this source:

http://icrontic.com/articles/what-is-tri-channel-memory

I have done this and CPU-Z says triple channel.

Yup, did just that, CPU-Z now says TRIPLE.

Found the Dell Service manual on-line (they used to put this in the box...) and it too says ORANGE slots first and then the BLUE, the second closest to the processor, which is Slot1. Slots from the processor are numbered 2, 1, 4, 3, 6, 5, with the first 3 to be populated as 1, 3, and 5 (orange). The numbering change threw me off there, but the picture made it cleared. The slot 3 you mentioned is really slot 4 by the manual and slot 6 as you called it is slot 5.

The page you referenced is correct, but it is misleading in that one would think DIMM#1 should be filled before DIMM#2. Who thought up this numbering arrangement.

Anyway, thanks, I'm 'up to speed' now. Why Dell shipped it DUAL is beyond me?

 

Thanks,

Irv S.

Re: XPS 435 Owners Thread

Thanks, Zerin.  I can appreciate that the SATA cable isn't included, since not everyone will want to add a second hard drive.  The PCIe thing still baffles me, though.

I didn't see any spare screws.  At any rate, I would have expected them to be located where the second HD would mount.  It's days like these that I really miss having CompUSA and Circuit City in town.  Newegg is good, and I can get delivery generally in 1-2 business days, but I'm like a kid with a new toy.

I just added a 2nd drive. Got it at Office Depot, see http://www.officedepot.com/catalog/search.do?fkey=wViTifnL4wgDnBtX2mJoivX&cbxRefine=314878&N=5+9988&Ntt=&Ns=&Ntk=&Ntx=&Nty= and it includes the SATA cable as well as screws and power supply cable. It was on sale last week for $10 less and my local store had it in stock.

There ARE screws in the case, at least mine had it. Right above the disk cage, on the removeable cage are 8 extra screws. 4 black for the removable area and 4 'silver' for the drives. It seems only one side of the drive needs to be *** in and I used 2 of the 4 'silver' screws and the drive is rigid and secure.

Thanks,

Irv S.

Re: XPS 435 Owners Thread

I got my 435t about 3 weeks ago. It took almost a month to get it. Right out of the box I too encountered freezes and lockups. I reimaged it from the factory image on the D drive and got the same results within a couple of days. My profile would load and then it would hang for about 5 minutes. So I rebuilt it from scratch using the cd's that came with it and not using Dell's image. Haven't had a problem since.  Have the 4870 card with 1gb on it and 6gb in the box.
